LONDON - SEPTEMBER 24: Dave Gilmour of Pink Floyd performs on stage as part of 'The Miller Strat Pack' concert, at Wembley Arena on September 24, 2004 in London. The event pays homage to the Fender Stratocaster, is in aid of Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy, and celebrates 50 years of the iconic guitar; NEWPORT, ENGLAND - JUNE 13: David Bowie performs on stage on the third and final day of 'The Nokia Isle of Wight Festival 2004' at Seaclose Park, on June 13, 2004 in Newport, UK. The third annual rock festival takes place during the Isle of Wight Festival which runs from June 4-19.

David Gilmour celebrates his birthday today (March 6), and while he’s been primarily active as a solo act, it’s difficult not to get chills when he performs those Pink Floyd classics live, particularly this performance from 2007.

Gilmour performed a three-night stand at London’s Royal Albert Hall that year.  The performances were filmed and resulted in Remember That Night:  Live At The Royal Albert Hall.  The highlight in the set came when Gilmour was joined by David Bowie who performed two songs:  “Arnold Layne” and “Comfortably Numb.”

To say the performance brought down the house is an understatement.

…and that guitar solo.  My God…that guitar solo!
